. we are endlessly reminded that everything must be on the table, including defense, which accounts for about 20% -- as you probably know -- of the budget. but defense doesn't really seem to be on the table in terms of widely-discussed solutions or strategies. instead, we confront sequestration, a thoroughly bad idea for getting a defense budget or any other budget. unless we take action, we could face a fiscal or economic crisis that forces cuts to our military priorities, steep and arbitrary cuts that are neither coherent, nor prioritized. the question is, can we and how do we achieve savings that can improve our fiscal outlook while meeting our national security needs? to quote admiral mullen again, he said the pentagon budget was basically doubled in the last decade, and in doubling we have lost the ability to prioritize. to make hard decisions, to do tough analyses, to make trades. we also need a review of our defense strategy that makes sure that we are preparing for the threats and risks of the 21st century, not those of the past. the foundation has funded two efforts along t
in brussels where nato leaders are sending patriot anti-defense missiles to turkey and warning syria of any thought of using chemical weapons. prince william leaves the hospital after visiting kate. she remains hospitalized for severe morning sickness. good day. i'm amount li-- andrea mitchell live in washington. the senate has managed to vote on something, rejected a u.n. treaty to extend rights to the blind and disabled, rights that have been the law of the land here in the united states since 1990. despite an emotional appearance from bob dole just out of walter reed, 89 years old, a passionate advocate for equal rights for the disabled since his first speech on the senate floor in 1969. joining me for our daily fix, kra, managing editor of post politics.com and capitol hill correspondents, nbc's kelly o'donnell and luke russert. kelly, to you, because this vote in the senate, john kerry led the way, it was bipartisan, in support. they needed 6 votes. it's a treaty, two-thirds of the senate and it failed. talk to me about all the ramifications here. >> it's not that often andrea, you kno
faith with the men and women who have suffered grievous disability in defense of our nation, and we owe them nothing less. this treaty is not about changing america. it's about america changing the world. but a vote here is a test of this institution. this vote is a test of whether the senate, which passed the civil rights act and the voting rights act and the americans with disabilities act, is still capable of voting to change things, let alone send a message that could change the world. i ask colleagues to do for the world what they've done for america -- walk down the aisle here and for millions everywhere who cannot walk make a stateme statement. raise your voice and vote for millions who are voiceless in their own lands. stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. this is not about the united nations. this is about common humanity. and this vote is to test whether the senate will stand up for those who cannot see or hear and whether senators can hear the truth and see the facts. please don't let captain brzynski down, please don't let senator bob dole down. most importa
that kicks in, that will have a slow impact. it's not like the defense department will say stop building tomorrow. these are things in the pipeline, and these things continue for a long time before there is an impact. >> the administration can take steps to further mitigate what the see questions trace would inflict sequestration would inflict on the economy. there are things that they can do to limb the damage. the reason why there is such a big question mark hanging over there would be a deal or not the administration has run a hard line of late about tax rates needing to go up, and the decision-making process in the republican party is sort of become dysfunctional and irrational and even though they could potentially minimize the damage by voting to extend all the middle income tax cuts, they can't bring themselves to do it until after all the tax cuts expire. then obama, you know, is not necessarily bound by just that demand. he could come and ask to free up more revenue. as dan was saying, i think they hope that something in the market will make the democrats move quickly but if the
. the justices will also review a provision of the federal "defense of marriage act" or doma that deprives legally married gay couples of federal benefits that are available to heterosexual couples. same-sex marriage is legal or will be soon in nine states and the district of columbia. but 31 states have amended their constitutions to bar gay unions. here with us to explain today's development, and where it could lead, is marcia coyle of "the national law journal." welcome back, marcia. >> thanks, marg wet. >> warner: so is it fair to say first of all that the court's decision to hear these first two cases in itself a momentous decision? >> absolutely. a number of gay rights organizations, particularly as if relates to the federal defense of marriage act have been working towards that point. and yes, whatever the court says, if it reaches the merits of these cases will be extremely important. >> warner: let's take them one by one, prop 8 in california first. remind us briefly of how what started out as a state issue ended am in the supreme court. >> the california supreme court a number of
defense is awesome. rg3 is phenomenal. coming to my first nfl game. >> on their home turf, scans fans believed they had a little luck on their side. it is the battle of the beltway. e battle to the because we have to take the steps to get there and we're going to do it. opposing teams of baltimore, we love them, we wish them the best, but on another sunday. ravens fans brought good charms with them, layer after layer. >> that's it. >> apparently all the good luck them goodot bring on the field. it is the redskins' nation that gets bragging rights tonight. fans of both teams it braved e rain and bundled up, but a on the way. let's get right over to our meteorologist who will tell us awayis rain is going anytime soon. we have another day of cloudy rain, but the big difference tomorrow is the temperatures. wait until you see what is on the way. chilly outside right now. 45 in cumberland as we look at our satellite and radar. there are that showers -- the moving intoivity cumberland and hagerstown. this is all living off toward the north and east. expect for the r of thevening hours? temp
we need to make the defense cuts. we want to minimize human services cuts. the best way to do that is go back to clinton era taxes. i actually have mixed feelings about striking a deal where the rich folks pay more taxes. i think they should pay more taxes, but i actually think going off clithe cliff is a bet solution than just charging people who make a lot of money what they were paying when bill clinton was president. >> the clinton tax rates worked well, and when you look at where we really are today, although the democrats are playing really tough on these top tax rates, they have conceded about 75% of the tax debate to republicans by agreeing with them on all of the otherç rates. >> that is true, aalthough there is a matter of timing. you know, i think part of what you have to look at here is it's really hrepublicans who force this conversation about having deficit reduction right now. we shouldn't have deficit reduction right now. we should focus on jobs and employment and continued stimulus for the economy, which i was really happy about the president at least had so
today. >> important social issues. >> the defense of marriage act. >> on the table for the supreme court. >> will the court be ahead of where the public is? >> what a question. what a story. >> good evening. i'm alex wagner in for lawrence o'donnell. will the republicans be able to face reality before we go over the fiscal curb? with just 24 days to go, it fell to chris wallace to try to get through to the fox news crowd. >> one side is going to have to give, you know. any bet on which side it's likely to be? >> on that issue, i think that the republicans are going to have to give. i mean, it was key issue in the election. it's unsustainable for boehner and the republicans to be in a position where they are blocking a tax cut for 98% of americans because they want to protect the tax rates of the top 2%. that may be right or wrong on its merits. but politically, it seems pretty clear. and you see more and more conservatives and republican office holders who are caving on that. >> later that morning, house speaker john boehner updated reporters on the negotiations with president obama. >>
it and in addition, to the federal defense of marriage act. two different things. that act restricts federal benefits gay couples can get by defining marriage as something that exists between a man and a woman. 38 states have laws or amendments that outlaw gay marriage. north carolina the most recent state to prohibit it it but nine states, and the district of columbia have already legalized gay marriage or in the process of doing so now. this has been one of the most charged social issues in the marriage. polls indicate people support gay marriage. now we know within a matter of months the supreme court could help settle it once and for all. molly henneberg on fox top story live for us in washington this evening. molly, explain more cases about the justices are going to hear. >> the supreme court had seven same sex marriage cases in front of it and selected these two. windsor vs. the u.s. is the defense of marriage case or dome that case. specifically looking at part of the law that gives federal benefits such as tax breaks to heterosexual married couples, not to same-sex married couples. is that eq
zimmerman's badly beaten case which indicates his claim of self-defense may not be so farfetched after all. joey jackson on the left. former prosecutor lis wiehl on the right. that picture looks self-defensish to me. it's horrible that he this didn't turn it over. the only thing can i say in the prosecution's defense is maybe they did not have the color photo. >> is this the old days when it took you six months to develop the film. >> i know. the other thing though everybody is calling it a new photo. it's not a new photo. it's the same photo. it's just what they had first in color. and as we know in color is going to be much greater. >> two issues. number one, doesn't it make the self-defense argue. resonate? >> yes. of course it does. >> number two, doesn't it look as if the prosecution attempted to withhold critical exculpatory evidence? >> yes it does. >> joey? >> as for the picture, i think the prosecutor can make the following argument. so what? okay. so what as to what. of course he has bruising. of course his nose looks like it's broken. of course there is blood. what does that tel

the future of gay marriage throughout the entire united states. at issue is the federal government defense of marriage act that defines marriage as only the union between a man and woman and california's proposition 8 which banned gay marriage was overturned by an appeals court. cnn's crime and justice correspondent joe johns has been following both cases for us. joe, explain the impact of today's decision. >> well, it is big impact. as you know, this is one of those cases that people talk about over the water cooler. let's start with proposition 8. very simple, wolf, it is the california ballot initiative passed in 2008 by the people of the state of california that established marriage as between a man and a woman. it overturned a court case that said same sex couples have the right to marry. windsor is the other case you were talking about, it is an attack on defense of marriage act which was passed in 1996 by the congress, signed by the president. it's called windsor against the united states. it is about a woman named edith windsor who had a long time relationship with her partner, and
's defense. >> she had reviewed the dpeor foer going. >> on sunday shows and went well beyond the talking points, we have decimated al-qaeda, that was nowhere on the talking points, said things the attack was a result of a heinous and offensive video. said the security at our consulate and strong and significant. that is not in the talking points and frankly not supported by the record of what happened. >> the talking points came from the intelligence community. you don't hear one criticism of david petraeus. it was his shop that produced the talking points that susan rice talked about. is there a double standard here? it appears there is, very unfair one. >> gregg: last week rice met with members of the senate armed services committee to try to explain the situation. lindsay graham saying that ambassador rice did not help herself very much. >> heather: supporters of mohammed morsi staging a demonstration in washington, d.c. standing in front of the egyptian embassy armed with signs. opponents were also out carrying signs with slogans like egypt deserves better. >> gregg: the highest cour

on the defense authorization bill. in the process, mccain gave credence to filibuster reform. his comments step all over mitch mcconnell's claim. it's not an effort to marginalize the minority party. with 386 filibusters from republicans, these rule changes are simply a way to make the senate work again. that's what you pay them for. let's turn now to senator debbie stabenow of michigan. there's been a lot of conversation in the liberal community in this country about this. and democrats seem to be chomping at the bit. is this going to happen? are we going to see change? >> yes, i believe that we are going to see change. we have the support to make the changes and i think it's clear the public wants us to get something done. of course, we're going to work across a shouldn't be able to hold up the department of defense bill or in the case of my bringing jobs home act, which is so important for shipping jobs overseas, we had 57 votes but we couldn't get 60 to stop a filibuster and they didn't have to stand on the floor and talk so nobody knew who it was from block us to closing loopholes to bring
their defense tab. you can't do it -- there's nobody to bail out america the way germany's bailing out europe. >> john boehner was on the program the other night. he said hey, i wasn't consulted about this latest offer. i wish i was. this talk about republican conservatives, tea party members that were purged from certain committees because they had a criteria list if they didn't meet or match the leadership vote schedule. is that a message to the more conservative way of the republican party? >> i think so. he's absolutely right to be disturbed about it. it's not john boehner's job to make this math add up. it's not john boehner's job to find ways of funding a three and a half or four trillion dollar budget. it's insane. if the democrats want to have a three and a half, four trillion dollar federal budget, fine. they can be the party of that. there ought to be a party that represents an alternative and john boehner is saying no, we'll help you close that gap. who needs the republican party? >> you think there will be an internal squabble, a fight, maybe an attempt to cede him in the end? >>
for 30 years. not any weapon is appropriate for self defense in the home. all the supreme court said is that you have a right to have a handgun in your home for self defense. they didn't say you have a right to have any kind of gun like an assault weapon and didn't say you have any right to take that gun out on to the public street and carry it with you. there are still a lot of questions to be answered by the supreme court on the scope of the second alternate. at least today as we understand it it does not ban from limiting magazines. >> background searches, limiting sale of semiautomatics and restrictions on hidden carry you don't think would be barred by the constitution. >> i don't think any of those restrictions are likely to be struck down by the supreme court. may be the biggest is the right to carry concealed weapons on the street. the supreme court said the right to bear arms is the right to carry arms but didn't make conditions. it's important to me the supreme court will say the government can require a license for anyone who wants to carry a gun on the street. >> license
to federal and state laws. one case involves the federal defense of marriage act, which denies federal benefits to same sex couples legally married in their own state. the other is a challenge to california's prop 8, which took away the right of same sex marriage that had been previously approved by state courts. >>> florida governor charlie crist completed his political transformation. crist was elected governor as a republican in 2006, then later ran for the senate as an independent. he campaigned for president obama, and spoke at the democratic national convention. he's now officially a democrat and is widely expected to run for governor again in 2014. >>> south africa's beloved nelson mandela is getting tests in a hospital. the country's president says no cause for alarm there. he says the 94-year-old mandela is getting tests consistent with his age. the nobel laureate became his nation's first black president. >>> the fbi wants to talk to a man in custody in egypt. he's a well known islamic extremist. that's why egypt wanted him taken down. but american terrorist watchers think he
that the house suspend the rules and pass h.r. 6223, to amend section 1059-e. national defense authorization act for fiscal year 2006 to clarify that a period of employment abroad by the chief of mission or united states armed forces as a translator, interpreter, or an executive level security position is to be counted as a period of residence and physical presence in the united states for purposes of qualifying for naturalization if at least a portion of such period was spent in iraq or afghanistan, and for other purposes, as amended. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title of the bill. the clerk: h.r. 6223, a bill to amend section 1059-e of the national defense authorization act for fiscal year 2006, to clarify that a period of employment abroad by the chief of mission or united states armed forces as a translator, interpreter, or in an executive level security position is to be counted as a period of residence and physical presence in the united states for purposes of qualifying for naturalization if at least a portion of such period was sent in iraq or afghanistan, and for o
on to half a trillion in cuts, in domestic programs and half a trillion in defense, understand what this is as a conservative, defense is 16% of the budget. other 84% gets half a trillion, defense getting half a trillion. the democrats are welcoming this to happen. >> the guy who ran second to mitt romney, many argue now with -- i think this is -- republicans are running with tail between their legs, and they are a lighter blue. >> they are referred to as cheap democrats. neil: you are persona nongratta now. or party we knew is gone. >> i'm hoping that is not the case. i'm hoping we'll have new members come in. and you know, we -- just saw it, i got involved in not a fiscal thing but it had to do with a u.n. treaty that the left's to s to hoist on u.s. that thing was going to pass, we got involved, an organization that i run, patriot voices, we stirred up the pot, got people to pay attention. neil: you are a force, you are a very commanding force it would be in upper tier of perspective presidential candidate. >> i appreciate, that but point is, i do not say that to pat our organiza
nothing, and here's the most important thing. he gets big cuts in defense which he would never get under a negotiated deal of any kind with republicans and democrats. he gets half a trillion dollars in defense cuts. yes, he gets a half a trillion dollars in cuts in domestic programs. they'll be much more than that in any negotiating deal, so this is actually a very good deal for the president to just say i'm putting forth good faith and if you don't do everything i want, then i've got a fall back i can live with. >> here's another thing that he says. maybe you ca can explain this. he's quoted as saying let tax rates on the upper income folks go up and then let's set up a process with a time certain at the end ofhere we will work on tax reform. we'll look at what loopholes, and he goes on. what american is ever going to believe a president or anyone else that later on the government is going to do this? i mean, does he think -- i mean, it's absurd. no american is going to trust that i'm here from the government and here to help you or don't worry, we're going to do this alert. >> it goes
that in the senate. in terms of saving money on defense, you are right, and we are. the two sides agreed to over $500 billion in defense cuts. people say is this funny money, is it real? it is not something i am in favor of because we live in a dangerous world we will lose 75,000 soldiers. we wanted to have 213 combat vessels. we will have 288. this is real reduction. i think the secretary of defense, secretary leon panetta has -- will tell you we have gone as far as we can safely go. i think both sides, and the president, i do not think we want military capability lower. i think we have saved as much as we possibly can. in terms of the other things, after the bush tax cuts came to thousand three, and revenue is higher than it was in 2003, and generated a lot of growth, and the deficit with the last republican majority leaving office -- our problem is a spending problem. we're spending a lot more money than we were then when the president came into office. we're putting off dealing with entitlement programs. we will double the people on medicare in the next 20 years. we should focus on where the prob
